I still remember perfectly how Joel described the flavor of gazpacho. I was given the task of making it for Anna and Vince’s Day at the Spa themed dinner. After his first sip Joel said, “This tastes just like a liquid salad!” He was right, that’s exactly what it tasted like! With all of the ingredients you’d find in salad, here it is in a cup! No fork needed! Sip Sip Hooray! It was the perfect starter for a delicious evening.
Made from fresh raw vegetables, Gazpacho is typically with a tomato base and served cold. It’s a traditional dish from Andalucía, a southern region of Spain. The contrast of flavors from the chilled tomatoes, onions and cucumbers with the spot on seasonings, Gazpacho is the perfect spring and summer soup. Light refreshing, it cools you down during those warmer months.
Blended and puréed, whether chunky and rustic or smooth and satin-ey, this no cook soup will refresh you during those hot summer days ahead! Served in small bowls or as an appetizer in shot glasses, it may just be one of your favorite “tapas“…it’s no wonder that gazpacho is Spain’s most popular soup! It’s pretty popular in my house, too!
